little chef cupcakes
This month I asked the lovely Sam from Wholesome Productions if she would do a recipe for the Little Pinwheel newsletter for all our budding chefs out there. I asked Sam in particular as her company prides itself on promoting cooking skills, healthy eating and nutritional learning through hands on participation. I know having a 3 year old, she is always amongst it in the kitchen and loves to get her hands into the cooking, especially when we are cooking the treats! They stock a great range of products that they have designed which teaches children by giving them a real experience in the kitchen with mum and dad. They have a great selection of kids cooking kits available on their website. I am going to have to grab a Pizza Cooking Set as Keely loves our homemade pizzas and it would be a perfect gift for Christmas!
Keely and I put on our chef's hats over the weekend and tried out Sam's recipe for the classic cupcake! It was a lot of fun and as you can see from the photos, the recipe works and yes they did taste as good as they look! This is a great activity to do with your children and to get them into the kitchen is a fantastic way of teaching them healthy eating. I know this from having the typical fussy eater!
